Can a baby sleep on their stomach when laying on my chest?
I baby sit my nephew from time to time, born in August. And I was wondering if it’s okay for him to sleep on his stomach when laying on my chest? I make sure every second his head is turned to the side and I always check his breathing, I saw a bunch of stuff about SIDS and now I’m worried.

Yes, as long as you are awake it is fine.

Yes, unless you're also sleeping. In that case, it's all kinds of dangerous and SIDS would be lower on the list. Dropping/suffocation would be tops.

If you are fully awake and watching him, not a problem.

About 1,600 babies died of SIDS in 2015, do you want to take that chance?
